Greek giants Olympiakos have moved to the front of the queue for Barcelona forward Bojan Krkic, El Mundo Deportivo has learned.
The former Spain international has joined the Catalans for pre-season training after his loan deal with Ajax came to an end, but he is unlikely to remain at Camp Nou for much longer.
Krkic has so far been linked with Malaga, Deportivo La Coruna, Stoke City and Olympiakos, with the Greek side recently emerging as favourites for his signature.
Coached by Spanish tactician Michel, Olympiakos are prepared to sign the forward on a season-long loan, offering him a yearly wage of €1.5 million.
And while the player is tempted by the prospect of joining the Greek giants, where Spanish-speaking staff would certainly reduce the time needed to acclimatize, Barcelona would rather sell him outright.
Krkic, who has another year left on his contract, has so far made a total of 104 La Liga appearances for the Catalans and scored 26 goals.
